Ahead of this weeks tour kicking off on Friday at The Heights (Chelsea Heights Hotel). Here are the lyrics to our new song 'The Middle'. If you're coming to any of the shows we would love for you to sing along and help us break in the new tune.

* Special mention to Aaron Keeley for nearly nailing it.

'The Middle'

I took a trip today one thousand miles away
And travelled further down a path that I had made
So I just followed it to where it all began
Until it all went quiet, that noise that's in your head

Just like a contour winds it's way across the land
I saw the lines in me but I didn't understand
If I was young or old or if I had a plan
Remembering yesterday while staring at the end

For years unclear as you gathered mementos
Then it clicked when you finally let go
Is it sink or swim in a rat’s bread tin or is this just a ride?
And you feel more remote from the control
But don't get stuck like a moth on a light bulb yeah
Is the urge to win buried deep within or somewhere nearby?
I know
Yeah it chokes like I clot in the bloodflow
And it starts to spin when you pull back in knowing someday you’ll die
Unclear
Until the Fozz put a click on the tempo
As the end begins look at where you’ve been in the blink of an eye

Seems like only yesterday we were starting out
No we ain't got much time left before tomorrow
Seems like only yesterday we were starting out
No we ain't got much time left

And now your home's in a bubble you don't own
It kinda stings like a bit of Tobasco
Is it sink or swim in a rat’s bread tin or is this just a ride
And there is shock at the state of your cash flow
Now you feel like you're someone you don't know yeah
As the end begins look at where you’ve been in the blink of an eye

Seems like only yesterday we were starting out
You know we ain't got much time left before tomorrow
Seems like only yesterday we were starting out
I don't know if I'm a young man or if I'm old
In between, as it all unfolds
I don't know if I'm a young man or if I'm old
Is it real or is it all just fool's gold

I took a trip today one thousand miles away
And sipped a cup of tea with the Lindza that I'd made
I dreamt of days gone by and stories I was told
There ain't no guarantees of young men growing old

I took a trip today one thousand miles away
And travelled further down a path that I had made
I dreamt of days gone by and stories I've been told
There ain't no guarantees of young men growing old

In 1979, Mikey Dread and his brother Jah T began to play at blues parties and local dances having spent many years under the watchful eye of their father, owner operator of the famous Admiral Bailey Sound. They chose the name Channel One in homage to the legendary Jamaican record label of the same name whose tunes featured heavily in those early selections. Inspired by Bob Marley’s belief in uniting people through reggae music, Mikey was keen to introduce new people to dub reggae music and started touring around universities, where he secured a solid fan base.

Channel One’s mission is to break down barriers via reggae music, they have achieved this by playing new venues, new festivals and different countries, taking their unique sound to Australia, New Zealand, Israel, Turkey and all over Europe. Channel One also celebrated 30 consecutive years at the Notting Hill Carnival making them one of the must see soundsystems for attendees to Europes biggest street festival.

2009 saw Channel One embark on their hugely successful national Dub to Dubstep Tour, with financial backing from the Arts Council, via Blackroutes and support from Punch and Vagabondz. Channel One took their sound system to 6 cities, touring alongside Kromestar, RSD and Jazzsteppa, showcasing their dub reggae sound system as part of the tangible heritage behind dubstep. In 2011, Channel One have been on another tour, this time Dub to Jungle alongside Congo Natty, Tenor Fly, Congo Dubz, Nanci and Phoebe and Klose One. And finally in 2012 Channel One went on a Jamaica Party tour, celebrating Jamaica’s 50th year of independence – alongside Coki, Mala, Shy FX, The Bug and Flowdan, Top Cat, The Heatwave, General Roots, RoxXxan, Rtkal and Screama. Finally Channel One have toured with the legendary Twinkle Brothers, a concept put together by Mikey Dread. These tours have been a great way for Channel One to reach new audiences.

Channel One Sound System were the Red Bull Culture Clash winners in November 2010, beating Skream and Benga, Metalheadz and Soul Jazz. Channel One competed in the Culture Clash in 2012 at Wembley Arena, against Major Lazer (with Usher and Rita Ora), Boy Better Know and Annie Mac Presents. Channel One are the first reggae sound system to have taken their sound to Wembley Arena.

Channel One Sound Systems hand built custom speaker stacks provide a rich heavyweight bass sound which compliments their tight selection of old and new dub reggae classics, all played from a single vinyl deck and accented with echos and sirens. MC Ras Kayleb compliments Mikeys deep draws with Rastafarian chants and song.
